One voter at a time, that’s how Democrats win. SLOCDP’s Grassroots Organizing Team (GO Team) is building an outreach operation that works precinct-by-precinct, block-by-block, door-by-door, person-to-person. Can you help?Sign up today for a training to get everything you need to help organize our county.
Do you think working people deserve fair and equal pay? Benefits? Livable wages?
Are you thinking of running for office?
Or getting more involved?
Do you wonder what you can do to fight for our community’s working families?
Do you support unionization but have wondered what we do, who we represent, or how collecting bargaining and contract negotiations work?
Attend the Central Coast Labor Council’s Union 101 for activists and candidates! Learn why unions are the only way to grow the middle class, level the playing field in our economy, and provide economic security to working Americans. You will have the opportunity to speak with local labor leaders to learn about the importance of unions for everyone, and what we do right here in SLO to fight for workers and their families!
Yet in 2017, women hold only 19.6% of the seats in Congress, and represent only 25% of the state legislatures. As the #metoo movement has highlighted, there are still barriers in place that women face on a daily basis – in their homes, in their careers, and in politics.
How do we change this? How do we accelerate the process of getting more women into political power? From school boards and city councils, to federal executives and volunteering for campaigns, we need women’s voices and leadership to achieve true representation.
Join us for a facilitated workshop where we will:
• Identify the barriers we need to remove, and explore how we can do that.
• Leverage the national momentum to elevate more local women into positions of power.
• Connect with local leaders and groups to take immediate action.

Whether you prefer walking precincts, phone banking, volunteering for a campaign, or are considering running for office yourself, everyone will leave with a Take Action Toolkit that will include dozens of ways YOU can get involved!
You’re invited to “drinking LIBERAL-ly,” a liberal social gathering with no-host drinks.
This is all about getting together and socializing, having discussions on anything you’d like, leaving labels at the door, and supporting local businesses. It’s informal and for fun.
We hope to see you there. Cheers!
